Just like me, I'm sure everyone's hand-phone and e-mails would have been jammed packed with New Year greetings. Yet I must say that there are some really cool, some hilarious, some just standard greetings but are truly sincere ones. And I'm sure most of you have the same ones as well.
Anyway I like to share some of these greetings I received via sms and e-mail:

The first one I received:

'Dear friends, sorry I don't meet all your year end invites. But nevertheless, lets move on, straight ahead, no looking back. What was bad in the past may be worst in the future; what was good may become better. That's life and it has it that the future is ours to take on. Happy new year.'

The shortest ones I received:

'Happy 2009'

'Happy New Year 2 u 2.'

'Cheers to a better future.'

'Happy New Year, God Bless. Love....'

'God Bless all in good health always' ( no mention of luck and money this one)

Philosophical ones:

'A Good sms for a Good person from a Good friend for a Good reason at a Good time on a Good day and Good Health to say Happy New Year 2009 to you.'

'A year round wish for you and your family...12 months Happiness, 52 weeks Fun, 365 days Success, 8,760 hrs Good Health, 525,600 mins. Good Luck, 31,536,000 secs. Joy *Happy 2009*.'

'The year is almost gone, but it has made us strong. The path was long, but we walked it with a song. There were fears and tears but we also had reasons for cheers. Wishing you Happy memories for 2008 and have a great 2009 ahead. Happy New Year.'

'Receive my simple gift of LOVE wrapped with SINCERITY, tied with CARE and sealed with PRAYER to keep you and your family SAFE and HAPPY all year long. Wishing you a Happy New Year 2009.'

'May 2009 bring joy and Happiness, wealth and health 2 you and family.'

'Have a great year ahead tony.'

B-egin 2009 with
L-ove in our hearts
E-xpect blessings
S-hare goodness
S-hine like the sun
I-nspire someone
N-ever forget that
G-od is with us.
Lets make 2009 another great and wonderful year.'

'My wish for you in 2009....May peace break into your home and may thieves come in and steal your debts...May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of RM100 bills...May love stick to your face like vaseline and may laughter assault your lips...May happiness slap you across your face and may your tears be that of joy...may the problems you had forget your home address. In simple words, may 2009 be the best year of your life!'

'Filter the bad tots of this year and take along all the good deeds, action, feelings etc and let them be the foundation of your new year and rest assured you shall have a Happy New Year..Blessed be the year for you and your family.'

'Well that's another year going by. Here's to a good year ahead. Count your blessings and look forward to the new year with optimism. Happy new year and may God bless you and your family.'

'May the Lord bless you and the family with blessings of love, joy and happiness. Happy new year.'

'Happy new year. May the bitter sweet memories of yesteryear challenges you to be stronger in mind, body and spirit. Have a great year ahead.'

'2009 is at your doorstep...Remember, life is short, break the rules, forgive and forget quickly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile...wishing you a wonderful and prosperous new year.'

'Every day God thinks of you. Every hour God looks after you. Every min. God cares for you. B'cos every sec He loves you. God is always there for you. Have a blessed new year 2009.'

'To all my friends, I give you all my best wishes on the last day of 2008 and may God bless you at all times in this coming 2009.'

'.....May the grace and peace of God be with you and your family, God bless.'

' Leave behind the madness, mayhem and memorable memories of 2008. Heck! lets do it all over again in 2009. Happy new year.'

'2009 dream bigger than ever before. Together we can make all dreams come true. Happy prosperous new year.'

'A happy 2009 to u and family. I agree..that's life but its never easy and everyone makes mistakes. This is normal and it takes 2 to tango. Have a jolly good evening - I know I am. God bless.'

'As Time always move forward and never backwards, so shall you always progress in all you do in life. Happy new year.'


May the dawn of 2009 bring PEACE to EVERYONE and let all financial calamities faced during the last few turbulent months be over and let prosperity reign again.'

Quotations and Sayings:

'Live well, love much, Laugh often - an old Italian wish for you this new year 2009.'

'Wishing you a Happy New Year- For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice - T.S. Elliot.'

'Tq. And I wish u and yr loved ones peace, good health, prosperity and happiness my dear bro. for 2009. I'm reminding myself of a saying by Ghandi - Glory lies in the attempt to reach one's goal and not in reaching it. I find it less stressful. Hepinuyea!

'The happiest person don't necessarily have the best of everything, 'THEY MUST MAKE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING' wishing you and your family a bright and successful 2009. God bless.'

And lastly, a really challenging one:

'Starting Thursday, 1st Jan 2009, may you be as handsome as your mother thinks; may you be as rich as your child believes; and may you have as many women as your wife suspects! I wish that you may have the courage of David, the meekness of Joseph, the tenacity of Moses, the obedience of Abraham, the wisdom of Solomon and the Penis of Goliath and a Happy New Year!'
